Okay, time to come clean. And i'll admit, it's a bit bold of me to say this, what with all you die-hard critics out there, just salivating to jump on the least behavioral imperfection of any member here who dares to push up against the grain.

So, okay, i just last nite, very sober-like, preordered the Live at Cow Palace CD from GD Store. Put it off for a bit, not sure whether i would or not, but streaming the show at end of last year, sorry, but the several songs i managed to listen to (through Playin') before the stream died and try as i might i couldn't get it to work again (commie plot?), i was pretty stunned by the production. And sure, i've heard better, and already have a boatload of music around me, but i guess it was the Playin' that proved the tipping point. Haven't bought a commercial music product in eons, but seriously looking forward to this package. Besides, i heard that Bobby's kids were kinda hard up and thought i'd do my bit.

Anyway, i know Liam is on board with me, and for all you naysayers, well, i don't know what to say, but groove on i guess.

hmm..I'd say the 73-76 time frame as I recall. Not sure about after that as I left the Bay Area in 77. Was a great station though. Broadcast from Gilroy, if I remember correctly.

whats the matter, we should be buying thier commercially released merchandise, what is the matter with all of you, think of all the band has done for you. the grateful dead was the hardest working band of all time. and beyond that they have changed my life more then anyone will ever know. I have bought about 12 of the dicks picks series and ton of other stuff through-out the years, I feel as though its the right thing to do. In a way its giving somthing back to the band for all they have done for us. No other band that has made it big lets the audience have so much to do with thier music. show some apperication. let the words be yours, i'me done with mine

WT ... please, not to worry. Had meant to shoot an e-mail in your direction tonite, but got busy with other stuff. Fact: said package is sitting at local post office waiting for my face and signature. Not a prob at all, but can't get there until this Saturday, which i surely will. Fact: will e-mail you right quick once i have retrieved and returned to home base. Fact: truly looking forward to the journey into a time that most have forgot, and which i never knew directly in the first place. Fact: as of right now, you are the coolest person on the planet.

No sweat...figured. Busy too, saw your post and thought I would check. Knowing it is there is 99% of the worry over.

You'll enjoy it, I am sure.

Let me know what you think of Cow Palace (what a name, eh?) after you have gotten through it all (assume you bought the 'hard copy,' right? Or is it a download item?). I had a number of shows from 76 and always felt 75 and 77 were better, but could never articulate why...not that this in anyway prejudges what will no doubt be a great show for you to enjoy...just 70s old fart biases resurfacing...

Ya, got the hard copy, disks and all, as well as some bonus disk of various traks. The thing is, i did think this out before jumping in on the purchase. For one thing, this is probably only the 3rd or 4th thing i've ever purchased via the internet, but i guess i felt strongly enough about the show to finally shell out the bucks. Like you, i'm rather more partial to pre-'76 & '77 material, but '76 had enough great shows to sway me. For instance, you won't go wrong with 6/12/76 at the Boston Music Hall. Plus i guess i'm a sucker for help>slip>franklin's ... moves me every time.

By the way, sent some disks your way this morning. Give me the good news when they arrive. Threw in some of your vaulted Aug. '68, though truth be told, that month is sparse indeedy.

Ha! I am such a Luddite, I had not purchased anything via the web til last year, and then I made up for lost time with, dare I admit it here, purchases enough to get Bob's kids through grad school...well, okay, still only pre 71 stuff, but everything I could find. It was great fun, but between the download and the hard copy (right term?) approaches, I much prefer the latter and as many have said here, would gladly pay good money for anything the boys released officially in such a form even if I already had a soundboard. Just so much nicer to get the little product with associated tidbits, text, etc.

Looking forward to your refinements vis a vis 68--very much appreciated. Still have to get through the amazing Hunter compendium that Ashes forwarded to me, but nothing can prevent me from working on 68 when it presents...Thanks.

I also have purchased a copy even though I have a excellent copy,in my opinion,of a sbd already.Peronally it doesn't matter to me if people do or don't...but I feel I should if it doesn't take anything away from the family.

Most of those circulating KSAN FM broadcast tapes are missing the encores. They are on the new CD set.

Just chiming in with a nod of affirmation that KSAN used to play on my radio, too. Those were the days, before the mass-corporitization of the airwaves. Back then on the stations like KSAN that existed, whomever was seated behind the mike was also the person who was programming the music, giving the station a distinct personality. On KSAN, I remember Terry McGovern in the morning in the mid-70's.

It's getting harder and harder to find that sort of thing on music-oriented radio anymore. The satellite market seems to to be using that old-school FM style as a role model, so there is a bright spot on that horizon, that is if you want to shell out the money for it.

Of course, MY listeners have my charming personality and dulcet tones to entertain them in the morning, so locals don't have to endure the cold nature of mass-programmed generic radio. Now, if I could only convince these people that they'd be better off hearing something like a track from Jerry's first solo album, a la' what McGovern and his colleagues used to do, as opposed to the current Nickelback single, we'd really be cookin'!

I have to admit, I only listen to NPR or my CDs in the car any more...used to get a lot of radio station time in (70s and 80s), but have no idea about it now.

Exactly. I could care less what other people to, but I sort of feel like I've taken a lot of freebies from the Dead and I need to give something back occasionally, even if it means spending $25 on something I already own.
